The Right Stuff: Fashioning an Identity through Clothing in a Junior School.
Swain, Jon
Gender and Education, v14 n1 p53-69 Mar 2002
Explored the role of clothing in expressing individual and collective identity among preadolescent English students. Results found that a relaxed enforcement of school uniforms created space for students to use clothing to gain recognition, generate common bonds, and share interests within peer groups. Clothing and footwear were used as an important bond in the construction, negotiation, and performance of masculinity. (SM)
